The states department of higher education is in the process of introducing choice-based credit system (CBCS) into all law colleges across Gujarat. State commissioner of higher education Jayanti Ravi announced this at Gujarat National Law University (GNLU) on Sunday, 26th Feb. The system will be introduced at both the undergraduate and the postgraduate levels. The idea is to standardize the system of education in the state, said Ravi while speaking at the inaugural function of First Gujarat Law Colleges Conference on Constitutional Law at GNLU. CBCS was introduced in various disciplines of universities in the state.
The system has a semester-based examining process and allows students to choose their subjects from a wide range of electives. The CBCS, which is being pushed by University Grants Commission (UGC), aims to completely revamp the present higher education system by providing elective credits to students who can opt for various inter-disciplinary courses. This means, a student studying economics will be able to take up a course in music, if he or she wishes to do so and vice-versa. Ravi said that the education department is working on methods of improving the quality of teachers in the state. The department will be developing books, teaching materials as well as teachers training materials through the involvement of various teachers and students. There is a need for more qualified teachers as well as improvement of the quality of the existing teachers. Apart from developing books and teachers training materials along with the help of teachers and students, we are also working towards developing a question bank, she said. Former acting Chief Justice of Gujarat high court B J Shethna, who inaugurated the conference, told students about accountability, misuses of judicial offices and corruption at various levels of judiciary. The event also saw the presence of state minister of law Pradeep singh Jadeja.
